Description

Berlin's Jewry has a unique and special history, from the days of the Enlightenment, through the horrors of the Holocaust, up to the revival of the present day, as Berlin fosters one of the world's fastest-growing Jewish communities.

Mendelssohn and Einstein are just two examples of Berlin Jews who have been responsible for some of the most significant events in intellectual and cultural development, changing the way all of us - Jews and non-Jews alike - live and think.

Yet their achievements came against a backdrop of anti-Semitic harassment and discrimination, which came to a head in the 20th century, with devastating effect.

See the site of the ancient Jewish Cemetery, which was desecrated by the Nazis in 1943 in an effort to eradicate the memory of Jewish history in Berlin.

Walk through the courtyards where working-class Jewish immigrants dreamed of a better world. See the the magnificent New Synagogue and hear the amazing story of this building, which reflects the fate of Berlin's Jews before, during and after Nazi persecution.

Visit the Workshop for the Blind, one of many places where non-Jews risked their lives to save their Jewish neighbours.
